Hope you have had a great 3-day weekend. We have a busy week as always. I can’t believe that we are ending the first quarter of school. Please check Parent Vue (PVUE) for new grades since our conference and let me know if you have any questions.

We will begin designing our habitats for the PBL this week. Students have the option to make a Powerpoint/Google Slide presentation, a shoebox model or a poster. If you have an extra shoebox to send in that would be greatly appreciated as we have several groups that have selected this option. Also, students are able to bring materials from home to use on their project. Please let them know whether or not something needs to be returned home at the completion of the project.
I am finishing the scheduled conferences this week. If you did not schedule a conference and would like one, please contact me. I am also available during the school year to schedule a conference when needed.
Thank you to those that have signed up for the STEM fair. I am excited to have several students particpating this year and looking forward to their projects. It is not too late sign up for the fair. Just to clarify, the fair to open to projects that use science, technology, engineering or math. Projects are not required to follow a specific method and it is open to student creativity.
Our class project to spread kindness around the school is coming together. During the week of November 11th (World Kindness Day is November 13th), the class will perform several community service projects to make our school better and help out those that normally do to the job.
World Kindness Activities
- Clean up around the school with Mr. Jorge
- Sponsor the PTA coffee cart and deliver coffee to teachers and staff
- Share ways to be kind inside and outside of school with students
- Letters and cards to say thank you to all staff.
We are looking forward to these activities and brighten everyone’s day.
